You know; I was so dumb when I was a teenager, in today's society, I'd have gotten killed a 100 times!
I wrote this for all the young people out there and for everyone.
Nothing changes, it just re-appears in different forms.
As long as there is poverty there will be crime.
Hungry children start out stealing food and wondering why they don't have what other people have
It often escalates from there.
Criminality, is learned behavior. Just as being successful, is learned behavior.
Honky-Tonk Bud jailhouse poem***
Honky-Tonk Bud; the Hip-Cat Stud, stood diggin’ a game of pool,
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags were baggin, and he was feeling' pretty cool,
It was the 15th frame, of a nine ball game, as Honky stood diggin’ his play.
When; with a sudden shrug, he suddenly dug, this strange cat comin’ his way.
This cat, was a funny time cat and he wore a funny time hat.
He wanted to know where Joe was,
Honky said, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
But if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll cop for you,
cause, I’m Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud from Venice Avenue.”
And in five seconds flat, Honky was back, pourin’ out smack from a cellophane sack,
He looked at the funny lookin’ guy and says, “Jim, I’m high.”
Jim says, “That’s cool, cause, dig Honky, it's, the FBI."
So after three long years at San Quentin, Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud was once again diggin’ a game of pool,
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags were baggin', and
Once again, he was feeling' pretty cool,
It was the fifteenth frame of a nine ball game when, out the corner of his eye,
Who should he spy but that same funny looking’ guy,
He wanted’ to know where Joe was,
Honky says, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
And if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll tell you right now,
Jim, you a damn fool.”
I love this poem.
It reminds me of a guy I knew in Bayonne. (NJ)
He recited; it to me, back in 68'.
Tony, used to say all kinds of wise stuff like; "what goes around comes around, be careful what you wish for you just might get it and never, say never."
He got murdered, 1970. He was 20 years old.
So this poem has sentimental value to me.
Thank you Tupac♥
Thank You Too, Biggie♥
Drugs are a big fake out. Used to keep people down and in economic bondage. "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer."
Unless the poor are smart and upwardly mobile.
Drugs keep you back when you're young (your productive years). If they don't hook you for life or kill you.
Drug Education should start to be taught in grammar school.
In the 1st, 2nd grades. Even on the most basic level, ie don't smoke cigarettes, don't drink alcohol, never take medicine unless a parent or doctor gives it to you, like that.
Increasing info with age. Until young people grow up knowing that drugs, alcohol, tobacco, etc. are bad and kill.
Reverse the drug propaganda. Replace it with the truth and facts about drugs, alcohol and about violence too.
I was 17 in nineteen sixty-seven. I know drugs and alcohol!
I had numerous, near-death episodes with drugs and alcohol when I was a teenager and in my early twenties.
Been there, decided to straighten out because I didn't want to die.
My Mother used to pray to St Jude (the Patron Saint of hopeless cases), for me everyday.
She used to say, that "God kept me alive because he had a special purpose for me".
Isolate the Victim.
Convince them that they like it.
Oh No, Stockholm Syndrome!
Recruit and Convince Accomplices.
Argue with the victim.
Leave occasionally (randomly but consistently).
a Beat the victim occasionally physically or emotionally, threaten often!
b Demoralize them to the point that they believe anything you tell them as truth!
Never let the victim forget you are (supposedly),
superior to them.
Pretend Nothing's Going On!

Heroin and prescription overdoses rise throughout NJ skyrocket in Ocean County by Star-Ledger Staff June 11 2013 NJ.com FB
Stories like this make me nauseous.
60 fatal drug overdoses In Ocean County, New Jersey this year.
In 2010, a total of 38,329 fatal drug overdoses nationwide.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Prescription Painkiller Overdoses
There is very little real cocaine or crack.
It's mostly a little cocaine so it tastes like it and a lot more pharmaceutical type amphetamine or even meth amphetamine.
Rock form, is so convenient for this.
FYI Even real cocaine from the coca plant is distilled in kerosene. I wouldn't put that into my body!
These salts and acids not only help to preserve the drugs they also help the user's body to eliminate the drug. Keeps even more people from overdosing. The salts eat up the opiate effects. Saline solutions are used a lot in medicine.
Over time; if the user doesn't overdose, these salts and acids destroy the body.
Street meth amphetamine/aka crystal meth, pharmaceutical amphetamine and pharmaceutical drugs, all drugs, in general, are extremely, corrosive to the body. You can't win with drugs.
They're Poison! Even patients who have to take them for pain, etc, hate them.
I know. I got hurt in 2000. Torn rotators cuff, neck and back injuries. The doctors tried every pain med there is.
I had severe reactions to them all. My skin turned bright red and burned, my hair fell out. True story.
Do You Really Want To Take The Chance Of Putting This Kind Of Poison In Your Body Even Once?
And Never Drink Alcohol when taking acetaminophen or prescription drugs containing it. It can burn your liver up, the first time. acetaminophen toxicity

Heet Gasoline Additive
Kitty Litter And some assorted, anything at all over the counter pharmaceutical drugs!
Oh man, am I really naive! I was upset when I thought they were just using pharmaceutical chemicals to make it! This is not a drug! It's Poison!
amphetamines and meth are two drugs that I personally; don't know too much about, except they totally destroy your body. They, will physically age your body thirty years beyond your chronological age! And it doesn't take long for this damage to occur.
Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) (In California)
Often, the heroin is fake too. A small amount of the drug mixed with anything else the dealer has.
Whatever the dealer wants to put in it, crushed up narcotic or non narcotic pain meds, tranquilizers, any kind of powder works, etc.
Besides taking the bogus heroin, cocaine and prescription pills, drug users out there are smoking pcp/phencyclidine, meth and not to forget the ones taking ecstasy. So, I know they don't have a clue. 42 arrested at Atlantic City Phish shows. (LSD)
I went out once in the eighties with some people who were into this junk (heroin). the dope was very bad. It was definitely synthetic. So like every product; nowadays, it can only have gotten worse.
Cops don't even get it. The News keeps calling it a high grade heroin. Which I doubt.
That's some reasons, why there are so many overdoses.
Prescriptions are now the biggest cause of fatal drug overdoses, source: Liz Szabo, USAToday A nationwide system of electronic medical records
Although pharmaceutical drugs may have a place in medicine, ie pain, etc. They're basically just some harsh synthetically created chemical compounds. The dr's warn to use only as prescribed and often they also have severe side effects.
Never shoot pills! That can kill you instantly, one time! Never mix them with other drugs like heroin. Again one time, that's the end!
Pills kill fast and they can make a person crazy too.
Total havoc when they're mixed with alcohol and or other drugs!
Street drugs are definitely Just Some Chemical Junk, that somebody made up, in their basement.
Pharmaceutical drugs are definitely Just Some Chemical Junk, That Some Chemist Made Up In A Pharmaceutical Company's basement. Neither are made from natural substances.
